Had 8:30 reservations on a Friday night. Seated as soon as we arrived. Surprisingly, we only had one server to take care of the 19 of us. She did a wonderful job! She was knowledgable about the menu and was able to answer any and all questions. She seemed very open and honest and a valuable asset to this restaurant,... More

We had excellent Irish food here and beer. The fish and sandwiches were good. Service was good as well.

This is our second time in this exquisite "real" Irish Pub. The atmosphere is only missing the "brogue" in the wait staff. That is not a complain but a compliment to the decor and feel of Curragh's when you walk it. If you never plan on going to Ireland, this will be as close as you can get. As a... More

Excellent Pub food on the trendy side. Fish & chips, Shepherds pie, & they keep it fresh with specials. Soup is good here.

Whether you truly Irish, Dutch, or anything in-between, you can pretend your visiting an old Irish pub from the 'ol country! This pub/restaurant has been nicely decorated to be as warm and inviting as those who will serve you here. There are plenty of nooks and crannies snuggled around larger rooms that include a pub-like walk up bar and even... More

Prior to this month, I have been to this little gem several times for lunch. Very nice, but the evenings are where the cuisine separates itself apart from the remaining Downtown Holland dining scene. It can be a bit loud by the bar, but the back seating area makes for a more relaxed experience. All I can say is that... More

Had lunch here with my husband and sister. My white chicken chili was simply amazing. As was my sandwich (can't remember the name, it was beef with a horseradish sauce). Service was great.

We had never been there before and we went twice in one month. The food is very good and is well priced. On the downside, it can be loud (but that does add to the Irish pub feel). We like the menu and despite the many good restaurants in Holland, this place has found a way to separate itself from... More
